Known by the locals as Lake Nyasa, this massive body of water claims the slot of 9th biggest lake in the world and is a major highlight of any overland tour or safari passing through East Africa. Tourists can enjoy activities such as freshwater snorkeling, diving or just resting on the beautiful beaches. The lake is also a popular spot for water sports such as kayaking and sailing, and is a great way to be introduced to the underrated beauty of Malawi. Lake Malawi National Park is located at the southern end of the lake.
Malawi might not get as much attention as other East African countries like Tanzania and Kenya, but it certainly does have a lot to offer visitors who are wise enough to choose it as a travel destination. So take a look below at our various overland and adventure tours that pass through Malawi.
